Israel must take steps to allow more food and water into Gaza, UN top court orders

WNews 1 Min Read

The top United Nations court on Thursday ordered Israel to take measures, including opening more land crossings to allow food, water, fuel and other supplies into Gaza, to tackle crippling shortages in the war-ravaged enclave.

The International Court of Justice issued two new so-called provisional measures in a case brought by South Africa, which accused Israel of acts of genocide in its military campaign launched after the Oct. 7 attacks led by Hamas.

Israel strongly denies it is committing genocide and says its military campaign is self-defence.

Thursday’s order came after South Africa sought more provisional measures, including a ceasefire, citing starvation in Gaza. Israel urged the court not to issue new orders.
